    When I check-in to iTunes it tells me how much I have left in my account from the gift card I put in.

    yes,i have a balance showing in iTunes now,i didn't click redeem and enter the code again,apparently you're supposed to do it again,it didn't take the amount off my account for the music track,it must have took it from my bank account.....so when i want to buy something do i have to go to iTunes,then redeem and enter my number each time i buy something?

    It should automatically use the gift card first (without having to use "redeem" every time). However it does not immediately show the balance change. That has been my experience.

    Poison ivy, I just purchased a game and pressed purchased. It asked for my password and than installed. I did not have to press the redeem-it just made the transaction and subtracted that amount from my available money on my gift card. You can see your balance remaining. I do not have a credit card online for purchases. I got rid of that months ago. It's so much easier and gives me a peace of mind.

    Thanks skimonkey,i decided to do exactly the same thing,i cancelled my card details last night by clicking on "none",i too think its much safer to purchase via a gift card,im going to keep an eye out for special offers on cards.
